Christopher posed 2 sessions for us. I did several sketches of him in pencil and one in charcoal. Here are two of them that I did with pencil. I used the 2H, HB and 4B graphite pencils on acid-free sketch paper. The sizes were 11"x 14".

Christopher posed for us twice in his "biker" gear at the Tuesday morning group. The preliminary sketch is sanguine on paper and the finished oil painting is 16"x20". I have sketched Christopher in the past in other groups, but never with his clothes on! I loved his Fu Man Chu beard, but didn't feel it necessary to include in the final painting. Teresa Chuh

Christopher did a wonderful pose in tough-guy biker get-up. I had a blast doing four studies of him in dry media. These three head studies are the most successful. The black/white one is charcoal on plain paper. The other two are pastel/charcoal/colored pencil on watercolor paper treated with sauce.
